problem. 50 Ethics in Chapter 32 this problem or we are going to calculate its amount of plutonium to deny in order to make 20 kilogram bomb. So 20 killed Tom Bomb commodity to the energy and draws equals 20 times 4.2 times 10 2 twenties draws on a proficient A plutonium A truth to 39th 200 American Electoral Wolfe and I. We converted it to draw us and then use the total energy. So I didn't buy this. Under the proficient we get is the number of plutonium to 39. So we did what I did with this number by 200 American Electoral Also between 200 hands 1.6 pence Intento miners certain stores. This gives a number or 2.6 to fight times 10 to 20 force and I am proud of being a mascot. So calculates the math off this amount of plutonium to 39. So firstly recalculated the number Oh, Moya off in this number off plutonium, we used to point of 6 to 5 times 10 to the 24th. They wanted a bite of gradual number, which is 60 6.22 times 10 to 23. On this is put four point of 36 miles the mall a matter of plutonium to also deny its That's the 2 13 I grabs a palm oil. So we times comes the number Oh Moya's by 2 30 I this eco's 1042 grams.
